He trained at the Royal Academy in London and became the director of the Society of Artists in 1774. Debts and an unfortunate affair with the wife of a colleague led to his abrupt departure from England to Ireland. He returned in 1783, when he began painting illustrations for works by contemporary authors. The success of these “painted illustrations” led to major commissions, including the one for this monumental painting from the print publisher Robert Bowyer. One of Bowyer’s most ambitious projects was an illustrated edition of David Hume’s "The History of England." It comprised not only a lavish publication, but the creation of a “History Gallery” for the public display of the original paintings. According to Bowyer’s prospectus, the paintings were intended “to rouse the passions, to fire the mind with emulation of heroic deeds, or to inspire it with detestation of criminal actions.” Wheatley responded to this challenge by depicting the more dramatic version of Richard’s death, in which he was beheaded rather than starved in prison. The theatrical gestures and expressions, lurid coloring, and bold brushwork serve to heighten the violent drama of the events. In the end, the project was a financial disaster; the paintings from the gallery, including Wheatley’s "The Death of Richard II," were sold in a lottery in 1807.

The first series, now in the Louvre, told her own life story. The second was to tell the life of her husband Henry IV, but was never completed, and most of the scenes are known only from painted sketches like this one. The event here is a 1589 meeting between King Henry III of France (Catherine de' Medici's youngest son) and King Henry of Navarre, the future King Henry IV of France. Henry III had no heirs, and a rival faction of French nobles who wanted to usurp his throne had taken over Paris. His cousin Henry of Navarre, although Protestant and excommunicated by the Pope, was the rightful heir. At the meeting portrayed here, Henry III promised to declare Henry of Navarre his heir, if the famous warrior king would help him to recapture Paris. To symbolize the agreement, Rubens shows the two kings clasping hands around the royal French scepter and a figure behind them holding an insignia of two clasped hands. A few months later, Henry III was stabbed by an assassin. On his deathbed, he made Henry IV promise to convert to Catholicism. Henry IV's famous comment was "Paris is well worth a mass" ("Paris vaut vien une messe").
